Kvelertak frontman Erlend Hjelvik recently spoke to Noisecreep about signing to Roadrunner, Trolls, singing in Norwegian, working with Kurt Ballou & meeting Dave Grohl.

Erlend had this to say about signing with Roadrunner; “We talked to a bunch of different labels and it seemed like the best option. They just seemed super-stoked and really wanted to do this album so it seemed like the best choice. When I first got into metal when I was fifteen years old all the bands I listened to at the time were on Roadrunner: Slipknot, Korn, all that teenager metal stuff. Also stuff like Sepultura. It seems like most successful big metal bands have been on Roadrunner at some point. It’s good that we don’t have to worry about the record not being released everywhere which was the case on the last record. It’s going to be fun to see what they can do with the album with the proper backing. It’s crazy we ended up there but it feels right at the same time.”
